Britain has al Qaeda on the run!
Well, al Qaeda is on the run now. Yep, "Britain would maintain efforts to thwart terrorists." By gosh and by golly. Leave it to the British leadership to put the fear of God into the violent Islamic terrorists. Whoops, EU rules: criminals. From the India Times, Britain's War of Gestures against Al Qaida. Well, thank goodness. I thought Britain's new PM Gordon Brown was going to fold and give'em England.
The prime ministerial response was buttressed by a Foreign Office statement, which reiterated that Britain would maintain efforts to thwart terrorists. "We will continue to tackle the threat from international terrorism as a priority in order to prevent the risk of attacks on British interests at home and overseas, including from Al-Qaida," a Foreign Office spokesman said.A H/T to DK at Vigilant Freedom, for A war of "Gestures". Problem is when you are the one being blown up, the war goes far beyond gestures. Just because Sir Salman Rushdie is creative and knows how to spin a yarn and earn a buck, the Islamists don't have to get all huffy. Liberate the Muslims, reform Islam, and see how creative the people can become, once free! Free from a "cult" that mutilates women and stones people to death; free from a "cult" that straps bombs on children and breeds hatred.
